Autumn term 2017
Welcome to Year 2! The teachers in Year 2 are Mrs Cutts and Miss Swift.
Here at Hatfield we teach a broad and balanced curriculum. We ensure that children are taught the key knowledge they need to know before they move towards KS2. We aim to move children through topics in all subjects with the goal that they will reach mastery which is the confident application of knowledge to a variety of question types and situations.
In English this term we will be using the classic text, The Tear Thief.
We will use this book to help us to write lots of different text types. Reading at home will help this process in school, it is lovely when children come in and share their stories from home.
In Science we are going to being by looking at animals including humans, we will determine what animals and humans need to stay alive. We will also identify animals and their offspring. We will also be investigating how to stay healthy and why it is important to do so.
We will be using the working scientifically strand and weaving it into the lessons.
In History we are going to continue to learn about Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia . We will be finding out about Ancient Egypt and how the Egyptians lived. We will learn about their writing, their way of life and architecture of their buildings. We will be using books and videos to help us find out more about the ancient civilisation.
In Geography this term we will be looking at beaches and coastlines, with a particular focus on Scarborough. The unit is called ‘Will my house fall into the sea?’ We will conduct a case study on the cliffs and the unfortunate tale of the hotel falling into the sea.
In STEM we will be looking at hand held toys. By the end of the term we
will be making wind up toys.
PE days will be on Thursday and Friday. Please make sure your child has the correct kit.
